(Also, feel free to leave anything out that you do not want to include.)

She just turned 5 years old.
Latest Milestone that You're Proud of with LO: Fastening her seat belt all by herself! I am pretty positive that I was getting "suckered" on this for a while, but it sure saves some time for her to do it now!
Latest Battle that You are Having with LO: Getting her up in the morning. She thinks she is a teenager!
Best Part of Being a Mama: Snuggling and unconditional love!
Funny Mama Moment That You Have Had: I have a bad habit of telling various adult friends, "Excuse me, I have to tinkle!" which is pretty embarrassing. :)

Next?

Best Part of Being a Mama: The sweet (and sometimes sticky) hugs and kisses.
Funny Mama Moment That You Have Had: So many.... It cracks me up when DH is practicing with his guitar and DD grabs her little toy guitar and they rock out together. My two Rock Stars!

Latest Milestone that You're Proud of with LO:
Sharing with her brother - they are both getting so good about it!
Latest Battle that You are Having with LO: Having DD sit quietly during the "Family Time" of DS's music class. DD would rather run around while all the other 3 year olds are sitting with their parents. It is hard for me to hear what DS's homework is with her being disruptive.
Best Part of Being a Mama: The hugs and kisses and "I love yous"
Funny Mama Moment That You Have Had: How do you choose just one....

Yay! I am so excited to start meeting you all, hear about your LOs and laugh already. :)

@ Tammy - Big congrats on PJ's 2 word phrases! You all should be very proud and I look forward to hearing more about your personal experiences with speech therapy. I'm sure that you could really give some of the other mother's some great advice as well as hope!

@ Holly - I'm right there with you, having a picky eater! Can't wait to see if we find any tricks that ACTUALLY work to solve that problem. Also, love the rockstars!

@ Leigh - Good to see you again! Congrats on the two getting along! I'm sure this makes everyday easier and more enjoyable. Yay! I also wanted to mention that ALL of my friends have made fun of me, since I had my little one. I am ALWAYS carrying around a tote bag (with 2 or 3 in the car :) ) everywhere we go with books, coloring supplies, outside chalk, a Leapster, Barbies, costumes, bubbles....Wherever we end up on our outings, I make sure that we are overly occupied to stay as long as I would like. Yes, I'm ridiculous but it works for us! Good luck!

Latest Milestone that You're Proud of with LO: DD- helping littler ones, DS- drawing mazes
Latest Battle that You are Having with LO: we don't really battle. DS likes to dawdle a lot and sometimes we have to get somewhere, so that can be frustrating. DD is on the computer more than I want her to be, but we are working on figuring that out together.
Best Part of Being a Mama:watching them get excited about things. looking at them asleep :) seeing their imaginations grow.
Funny Mama Moment That You Have Had: yikes - I have to go and pick them up from preschool now :) but I'll think about that one! :)
